Hey all! We were up before the sun and are reporting live from the Disney 24-hour Rock Your Disney Side event on both coasts!
We’ll be updating this post throughout the day with new eats and treats, so be sure to stay tuned! We already have a LOT to share with you!
For those who haven’t heard about this event, it’s Disney’s opportunity to kick off the Summer season (and to promote their new rides and movies) by being open for 24 solid hours at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom and Disneyland! Guests get the chance to indulge in one-day-only treats and goodies, have access to fun one-day-only merchandise, and fight super SUPER huge crowds (always a must when you’re at Disney, right?).
OK, let’s dive right into the list of what we’ve been noshing on this morning…
Disney World AND Disneyland Specialty Treats
So with this whole “both coasts homogenize all their food” thing (blerg), you can see similar specialty treats in Disney World and Disneyland more and more often. This is definitely happening for this big event!
Rock Your Disney Side Heroes vs. Villains Cupcakes
Of COURSE there are specialty cupcakes! How could they deny us this?
Today, they’re featuring vanilla and chocolate versions with little villains and heroes logo chocolate pieces on top. (I guess your “Disney side” is heroes vs villains?)
Maleficent Themed Rice Krispie Treats, Caramel Apples, and Cake Pops
These Maleficent goodies are definitely some of the most creative I’ve seen in a while! Interestingly, the cake pops were executed MUCH better in Disneyland than they were in Disney World, so I chose the prettier pic to share.
Disney World Specialty Treats
There are a few goodies debuting at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom today! (We’re hoping some of them might hang around on the menus, but, sadly, most of them won’t.) We’re super excited about this one in particular:
Poisoned Apple Waffle Sundae
Found at Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom’s Liberty Square, this lightly sweet waffle is topped with vanilla soft serve and stewed apples (basically good apple pie filling). The whole thing is sprinkled with green and purple sugar crystals to promote the new Maleficent film.
Over at the Lunching Pad, this breakfast dog features sausage, eggs, and plastic cheese!
These new cupcakes featuring some of your favorite characters are at Main Street Bakery today!
Belle Princess Cupcake
Found at Gaston’s Tavern, this Belle cupcake with a fondant rose on top is special for today!
Orange Bird Caramel Apple
I have no idea why this little cutie debuted today, but I love it! Featuring the Orange Bird, the classic Disney World specific character introduced to promote the Florida Orange Growers at Magic Kingdom’s Sunshine Tree Terrace, this little guy is a long-time Disney World fan favorite.
Olaf Souvenir Mug
This fun souvenir Olaf cup comes with blue raspberry slush at Friar’s Nook and a frozen carbonated beverage at Lunching Pad. These will be staying on past today, so you’ll be able to get yours when you visit.
Disneyland Specialty Treats
In case you’re spending part of your day at Downtown Disney we’ve got this handy list of operating hours for you!
Heather spied this amazing Mac & Cheese Flatbread earlier! You’ll find it at Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta at Disney California Adventure’s Paradise Pier!
It’s been pronounced “amazing!!!!!!” (That’s six exclamation points. So you know it’s gotta be good.)
For a cool frozen treat in Disney California Adventure, head to Clarabelle’s and try their S’Mores Bar.
Vanilla or Chocolate Ice Cream dipped in Milk or Dark Chocolate, and then sprinkled with Graham Cracker Crumbs and drizzled with Marshmallow Fluff! Yes please!
Can’t wait to share more goodies with you from this 24-hour Disney Day on both coasts!
Stay tuned for more great treats throughout the day! It’s time to Rock your Disney Side!
